[TiT] That’s It Tuesday – Issue 59


I’ve decided to kill Sucker Free Sundays now.  The thread is meeting its age, and seriously I doubt anyone cares who writes on what days anymore.  Oh well, it was a long ass run!

Today I wanted to mention a special link that does not get enough love.  Do you have a PS2, and you want to run games off a USB hard drive?  Well, time over time I get the same question asking why their game does not work.  They can copy to the hard drive, but the loading screen is black and it hangs there?

The reason it does this is because the game is probably not compatible with the USBExtreme or HDALoader program.  I don’t know why that is.  If you have a modded PS2, just go straight to burnt game.  If you have swap magic, go to straight copy.  Why bother with USB hard drive?  Sure, it may save your laser, but the USB 1.1 performance sucks for the FMV sequences, and its good for regular game play. Maybe having a load of games on the hard drive gives you a hard on…. I don’t know 😉

Go to this link below, and check if your game is compatible.  If not, then go a different route.

This Thursday is Thanksgiving, so I’m going to have a nice turkey with the family, mashed potatoes, yams, and cranberry juice.  Yum!  How will you celebrate Thanksgiving this year?  Let us know in the comments!
